Microsoft, Xignite, Skyline Technologies, and Appleton Group Wealth Mngmnt. Deliver Cutting-Edge App

SAN MATEO, Calif. & APPLETON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Xignite, Inc., the leading market data cloud solutions provider, and Appleton Group Wealth Management, LLC, today announced that they have partnered with each other, Skyline Technologies, and Microsoft (MSFT) Windows Azure/Windows 8 to develop clearTREND™, a new mobile investment research app that helps manage investment portfolios. clearTREND is the first investment trend calculator publicly available. It solves a fundamental problem in investing by accurately calculating past price trends for any security, then generating real-time buy and sell recommendations.

“Xignite is a leader in delivering market data to fast-running apps by harnessing the power of the cloud,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO and founder of Xignite. “We are proud to be in the company of industry leaders such as Microsoft, Skyline Technologies, and Appleton Wealth Management.”

clearTREND is web‐based and built for use on any computer (both Windows and Apple‐based), as well as Windows 8 tablets. With 10 patents pending, clearTREND is an innovation in its field because it uses crowdsourcing to analyze changing price trends, as well as generate real‐time buy and sell recommendations at optimal points in time. clearTREND is powered by XigniteGlobalHistorical and XigniteIndices services. It also uses Microsoft’s cloud‐based computing service Windows Azure. With an analytical technique called ‘Simple Moving Average Crossover,’ the app measures historic price trends for over 60,000 investable securities. clearTREND leverages optimization technology to continuously hunt for new price trends that may be more advantageous for the user to follow.

“clearTREND represents a significant leap forward in the field of investment and economic research,” said Mark C. Scheffler, Founder and Sr. Portfolio Manager for Appleton Group. “This app is a ‘must‐have’ for any individual investor or professional advisor, but it’s especially useful for 401(k) participants working to make their retirement plans more profitable, less risky and more predictable.”
